Question New and conflicted

We are considering buying a PUP Coleman 2003 sante fe with a repaired crack across the width of the roof repaired with Aluminized caulk. No other cracks or delamination I can see. The second owner says he bought it like this from the original owner and it has not leaked in multiple trips elk hunting. The unit is in perfect condition otherwise. Barely used. Read alot about the trouble with abs roofs. Any solutions to repairing the crack if need be down the road. Thank you for your time. Dana and Tammie

TJ, Eternabond tape might be Good for that ... probably much better than caulk ...

Welcome to iRV2. I agree with GPW. I have used Eternabond tape and it is very good.

Best not to buy it if you have any doubts. The seller wants you to buy it so he's naturally going to say "no problem". If there is any chance you're going to wake up in the middle of the night soaking wet from a rainstorm you're going to regret it.

Speaking for myself if I were considering it I would find out what the worst case cost would be to get it repaired or replaced perfectly. Add that cost to the price of the unit and see if it still made sense. If not then I would continue looking elsewhere.
